Joey Barton is odds on to receive a three match ban for punching Morten-Gamst Pedersen in the chest. William Hill are offering 1/4 that his punishment stretches for three matches and for Joey to receive no ban is priced at 8/1. Flouting the laws of the game seemed to be the order of the day on Wednesday when Ian Holloway made ten changes to his side that faced Aston Villa. Olly has claimed that he will quit if he gets a fine and Hills reckon he may do well to start clearing his desk now with 8/13 offered that he receives a fine of some sort from the FA and 6/5 that he does not.
Joey Barton is no stranger to controversy and would it appear that the FA may decide to step in and hand the midfielder a ban, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Joey Bartons team-mate, Andy Carroll, has been the subject of much praise recently and William Hill are offering 1/2 that he earns his first England cap against France on the 17th November.
Hills have also opened a market on who will be in the top two come the end of the season and make Chelsea followed by Man Utd, the 2/1 favourite while Chelsea/Arsenal is the 3/1 second favourite.
